The lamest post I could muster up...

Because I don't have anything too terribly exciting to post about, for sheer lack of cohesiveness, and to accommodate what I like to call my LILADD (Late in Life Attention Deficit Disorder), I find myself in need of some bullets for this one:

  • I'm beginning to get sick and it happened overnight. My throat is sore and I'm almost certain that if a telemarketer called me right now, I would somehow be referred to as 'sir'. And I know exactly why my sickly voice sounds as masculine as it does. It really is no mystery. It's because last night I went to see the movie Bride Wars and I made a little quip about Kristen Johnston (who plays Anne Hathaway's coworker) having a man voice. Now that's some serious karma.


  • I've been spending the past several days working on a work related project that is due this Wednesday. Even though I taught school for several years in Florida before transferring to Georgia, I'm still treated as a 'new' teacher and therefore have to go through Georgia's little training episodes. So I've been spending most of my spare time (does that even exist?) on this lengthy project and I'm about to go nuts. Seriously Georgia, can't I just pledge my allegiance to football and fatback and call it a day?! (fatback - also commonly referred to 'white bacon, ' fried bacon fat' , or 'clog your arteries in a milli-second')


Does that photo even need a caption?



Hope you all had a great Monday.

I hope to return to my daily posting schedule soon.

Just as soon as I shake Barry White out of my voice box.

Sorry you have a man voice! I swear I've been there!!! Something about repeating yourself all day to hoodlums and breathing in all their germs at the same time. Probably nothin' to do with karma. =)
That stinks about all the extra work- dang Georgia! I just found out today that I have to pay the state dept. to get my additional licensure... wasn't my $2000 to GET certified enough???? Sheesh!

Hope you feel better soon!
*HUGS*

Your too funny! Hope you feel better soon!

The Thompson's said...

Oh Hollie, I hat to laugh at your expense, but that was HILARIOUS!!!

Our thought and prayers are with you and is is our hope that God wil heal your voice very soon so that you dont progress from sounding like Barry White to sounding like Micheal Clarke Duncan. Of course then you could say "I's tired Boss....Dog tired"

Love and Prayers Hollie,

Tim

Elle said...

Embrace the sexy man voice! God puts us in positions for a reason! LOL

Even the seemingly 'simplest' posts you write are so full of personality. You keep me entertained and laughing!!

Feel better, drink some tea and get back to posting! I need a dose of Hollie everyday! And good luck with the project!

Fat Back... I need to add that to my vocabulary list. Good luck jumping through the hoops. Why they make it so hard for teachers I'll never know.

An FEEL BETTER! We need more of your funny posts, though you do pretty darn good with bullets and a voice that sounds like Barry White! Get well girl!

Legallyblondemel said...

Having had to obtain another state license to practice myself, I can empathize - isn't it silly? At least you have a better sense of humor about it than most of us mere mortals.

Hope you feel better soon!

Candice said...

Megan said...

Is it weird that I love when my voice is going away and I have that scratchy man voice?? Yes that probably is weird.
LOVE that pic, SO cute!

Rebecca Jo said...

That picture is great!!! I see visions of a little punk rocker in her teens... then, maybe, not so cute! :-)

LyndsAU said...

And I know what you mean about GA making it a pain to teach!! it stinks!!

The wife said...

Sorry that you aren't feeling well, but the upside is that now would be a great time to get all your prank calls in and no one would be able to figure out it's you until you told them!

April said...

Cracking me up!!That happens to me about once a year and it takes a good three days to shake the voice.
Fatback and football...you are truly southern if you know and love these two things!! Reminds me of my childhood...of breakfast with fatback gravy and Friday night football. You have made me smile today!I used to be a teacher and can I tell you I have had my feel of those work related "projects" and I am so glad to be done with that!!

Paige said...

Hope you feel better soon and that picture made me smile!

Hugs!

Katy said...

Sorry about your ouchy deep voice! Hope you get better so soon, my 3 have been sick around here. I was starting to get cabin fever today and headed to the grocery store and almost had an anxiety attack being around so many people. I hate that feeling, but all went well.
You are the second or third person that I've read today w/ a random post. Mine was also random today. Hmmmmmmmm....Random Wednesday's, that kinda sounds good. See, I'm rambling about randomness.
Fun picture of sweet girl!

Britni and Justin said...

Hope you are feeling better!

Lianna Knight said...

Where did you leave in Florida? What school district did you work in? I didn't realize you were a teacher :)

Pink, Green, and Southern said...

I hope you feel better! Your pictures of Kate are always so freaking cute! BTW I got some of that chapstick....I will have to see how it goes.

I left you something on my blog!

Soliloquy said...

I'm late. And sorry. I do so enjoy your blog.

Equally as NOT useful is my Zycam nose swabs recommendation. They STOP illness in their tracks. Go getcha' some for the next go 'round.

I'll be better about commenting. I promise.
